Cathay Pacific — The Artmap Project
January 12th, 2017
Art Website Work

We worked with McCann to help Cathay Pacific create The Artmap Project, which uses an algorithm to create a unique piece of artwork for Marco Polo Club members, based on their flight history on Cathay Pacific and Dragon. Each member will receive a 20-second long animation on their birthday.

The animated art map consists of strokes and dots, representing the member’s flights and destinations respectively. No matter how many there are, or how they are distributed, the algorithm ensures the art piece still looks aesthetically pleasing. With over a million club members, even for people with the same flight history, no two art maps are the same.

Concept, Creative direction, Campaign website design & development: McCann Cathay Pacific Central Team
Artwork creation and programming: pill & pillow
CRM system: ICLP

我們和 McCann 合作為國泰航空製作「藝術航圖」,根據每位馬可孛羅會員的飛行紀錄,產生獨一無二的藝術品。完成品是一段約二十秒的動畫,在會員生日時送上。

地圖動畫由線和點組成,分別代表飛行路線和目的地。我們的計算方法確保不論航班的分佈和多少,也會得出滿意的結果。另外,在處理超過一百萬個會員數據時,即使兩人的航班記錄一模一樣,他們收到的結果也會是獨一無二。

搖搖裙是 Henry 為紙藝展覽而創作的動態雕塑。

Artist statement:
On November 6th 2012, my daughter was born.
May she grow healthily in 2013.

I could imagine my daughter having long hair as she grows up. I wrote a program to simulate and generate the texture of hair, then applied it to a photo of my daughter. To my surprise, I could see growth from the generated image of her in 2013, I hope everyone will grow beyond their expectations.

藝術家自述:
二零一二年十一月六日,我的女兒出世了。
二零一三年,希望她好好長大。

我可以想像女兒長大後有一把長髮,於是我寫了一個模擬頭髮的程式,把程式應用在女兒的照片上,在生長的畫上,我看到了意想不到的生長(成長),我希望大家在二零一三年都出乎意料的成長。

The Five Colors Blind the Eyes – Soundtracking #JohnCage4’33” exhibition
November 2nd, 2012
Art Exhibition Installation

Henry created the work “The Five Colors Blind the Eyes” for Soundtracking #JohnCage4’33” exhibition. The work exhibits in K11 from 1st Nov 2012 to 11th Nov 2012.
The Five Colors Blind the Eyes
The work 4’33” by John Cage performed 4 minutes and 33 seconds of silence and tranquility. Without the use of any instruments, the natural occurrences of sounds in the environment become auditory. From Chapter 12 of Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching, “The five colors blind the eyes. The five tones deafen the ears.” Seeking for sounds of the melodic results in a dampened sense of hearing; the eagerness to hear results in deaf of the truth and whole. “The five colors blind the eyes” is a website that changes its color 50 times per second, aiming to create a dizzying effect – behind the flamboyant colors are, in fact, a torture for the eyes.
五色令人盲
John Cage 作品 4′33″ 演繹了 4分33秒的寂靜。沒有樂器,但反而聽到了環境中自然存在的聲音。《老子》十二章中的 「五色令人目盲,五音令人耳聾」,也在說過於追求精彩的樂音,反而會令聽覺遲鈍。追求聽得到的,反而聽不到更真和更多。「五色令人盲」是一個1 秒 50 次的顏色變化的網站,目的是制造目眩的效果。美艷色彩背後,其實是對眼睛的折磨。
Venue: Tsim Sha Tsui K11 Art Mall B2
Exhibition Period: 1st November-11th November (12 Noon-10 pm Everyday)
Free Admission
地點: 尖沙咀 K11 購物藝術館
展出時間: 11月1日至11日 (中午12時至下午10時)

Shadow Clones for Lee Flagship store
April 28th, 2012
Art Installation

Henry was commissioned to create an interactive installation ”Shadow Clones“ for Lee Flagship store,Causeway Bay.

Artist Statement:
Your existence diluated in this over-populated city. Nothing is going to last.
On this tiny stage where shadow multiplies, minority may win.

Henry 為 Lee 於銅鑼灣白沙道旗艦店的 feature artist,並以《The City Is Mine》為題創作了「影 • 分身」。

創作自述:
在這個城市,人很多,存在感卻很稀薄。
從來也只有以寡敵眾,除了這份屬例外的小舞台。因為光,事情變得可能;寡,就成為了眾。
